To highlight efforts at STCS we are introducing our new Resource Teacher , Kate Johnson.
Welcome, Mrs. Peterson
STCS welcomes our newest faculty member, Mrs. Kathleen Peterson. Mrs. Peterson joins us after relocating from Santa Clara, CA where she taught 5th grade English Language Arts. Prior to that, she taught at Oakland Elementary School in Charleston, SC. Anticipating the need for a long term substitute in fourth grade, Mrs. Peterson will be assigned to projects and classrooms as she gets to know Saint Theresa School. With Mrs. Peterson's experience in the classroom, a Masters of Arts Degree in teaching from The Graduate School of College of Charleston and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies, STCS welcomes Mrs. Peterson and her family.
Fundraising for STCS
A very special thank you to the PTO for all of the work in preparing for this Saturday's auction. Since last spring, the enthusiasm and excitement of raising funds to support STCS teachers has been infectious. The evening is designed to celebrate the community of Saint Theresa while raising much needed funding. I invite you to join us on October 20th here at the school, marvel at the creativity of so many who have contributed to this event with time and talents, enjoy the festivities, and support STCS by participating in the auction and raffles.

Innovation for Learning
This week at Innovation Learning - 

Along with our daily academic support and physical fitness programs, we are excited to be starting our Space Unit during our Innovation Stations. This unit helps us celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NASA space program! We will be blasting off the next couple weeks, and explore the moon. We will explore how astronauts survive in space, how they study the surface of the moon, and the functionality of a spacesuit. These lessons include a hands on approach to solving some of NASA's genuine problems. We will also be introducing our ECE students in November to their own STEM version of space! Innovation Learning is also partnering with your local community partners to offer a variety of enrichments starting in November. Look for flyers coming to your school shortly about these incredible enrichment opportunities. For more information on our daily after school program or for future enrichments coming soon, feel free to contact us at 1-866-239-3661
